    Hey guys. Tragedy hit close to home yesterday. I found out around 4PM CST that my guitarist Ronnie in LaSanche had family which were murdered in the church shooting in Southerland Springs, Texas. His Sister in law lost her father, mother, brother, sister in law who was 8 months pregnant, 4...
  2. Guitar: Pickups Discussion
    So, this was my weekend project - less so the wiring and filming, more than all the editing. :lol: I took some of suggestions from the last one of these I did and edited the video so all the neck position sounds were together, all the neck/mid ones, etc. Then, for kicks, I mixed it down both...

    I just joined and look forward to much learning. I picked up guitar as a mid life crisis a few years ago and have been hooked ever since. I spend too much time tweaking and modding and chasing tone, but I enjoy it. Its part of the overall "hobby"/obsession. Trying to play more of late. This past...

    Went to this amazing show over the weekend honorable mentions to Blaspherian, Imprecation, and of course my boys in Uncleansed! :metal:

    I ordered a Texas heat speaker last night and was wondering if anyone has tried them. I really like the swamp thang but they just aren't bright enough and I was told the Texas heat is similar but is brighter.

    I got these in a prewired pickguard with a Pearly Gates bridge. They sound awesome but I hate 60 cycle hum and have a noisy house. $80 + shipping for the pair OBO. I've prefer to keep it in Canada if possible. Anything close-ish to Sarnia I can probably drive out. For references, my ebay...

    I have to spend some more time getting to know these, but my first impression is by and large Dimarzio did a pretty good job here. The Texas Special is a little more chimey and has better dynamics than the Dimarzio, and is absolutely gorgeous clean, however with moderate distortion they're...

    I won't be able to wire these up until later tonight, but I swapped the pair of Heavy Blues 2 pickups I had for a pair of Texas Specials. Creme covers might be kind of ugly on my Strat, but, well, I AM a little tempted. :lol: Thoughts and a video A/B comparison later tonight, most likely. I...

    This is a demo of the Toadworks Texas Flood Overdrive pedal. Fantastic pedal, nice bluesy sound, ala SRV, that really lends itself to single coil pickups. I used my Chapman ML-1 and my Egnater Rebel 20, mic'd with an SM57, and added a little bit of reverb in Reaper. Big thanks to Ryan Dunn at...

  16. Guitar: Instrument Discussion
    If anyone sees my red KxK at a pawn shop or anywhere else, I'd appreciate a heads up. I was robbed tonight, and it was among the more valuable and personally loved things stolen. Also missing are a black i7-equipped 17" Dell laptop that is broken by the right speaker and a Vetta 1 head with a...

    Hello all.... I've posted over at for a few months and found out about this place from over there. I recognize a few names from over there too. It seems there are a few more people around my age around here. I use a different screen name over there and I just decided to go ahead and use...
